seems like today i have many words wondering around, but no good way to string any sense together. they seem a little fuzzy in the middle and razor sharp around the edges. blurry and boring as brown and crystal blue clear. but, even in not knowing what to say, here i sit, fingers click clacking away, eyes starring at the bright screen, hoping something shiny will come of this letter and that.
it’s funny cause i feel like lately i’m decoding some business of the heart. i haven’t quite cracked it yet and probably never fully will. hearts are to be guarded. hearts are to be open. hearts are broken. hearts are homes. we hide things in our hearts. we share our hearts. hearts carry. hearts hold. hearts are heavy. hearts are light. hearts grow and hearts can grow cold. life (and the course of it) flows out of our hearts. and, life stops when our hearts do. but, lately what i’ve been noticing is that our hearts have the ability to let.
do not let your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
i’m not sure the state of your heart. whether it’s brittle and broken or flowing over full. open and guarded or closed and cold. the past few days mine has been feeling a bit troubled and i’m guessing some one who is reading this may be feeling the same way. so for you and for me . . . do not let your heart be troubled, dear one, neither let it be afraid. but, do let your heart (give it permission) take courage. courage for today. courage to let it heal. courage to love again. courage to be loved. courage to forgive. courage accept forgiveness. courage to find its next beat. and, it’s next and it’s next and it’s best beat, yet.
